Law Awareness Weeks@CDC
LAW@CDC was started to educate residents through legal talks conducted across the five districts on basic legal knowledge. These talks are held at Community Centres/Clubs (CCs) and Residents’ Committee (RC) Centres. The talks are tailored for those who are not legally trained by breaking down legal jargons so that they are easy to understand.
On 28 September 2020, Minister Edwin Tong announced the renewal of two Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) – one MOU between the Community Development Councils (CDCs) and Law Society Pro Bono Services (LSPBS) on Community Legal Pro Bono Services Network (Community Legal Clinics); and one MOU between CDCs, LSPBS, three Institutes of Higher Learning (National University of Singapore, Singapore Management University and Singapore University of Social Sciences) and one new partner Singapore Counsel Association (SCCA) on Law Awareness Weeks@CDC.
